Achieve Net Zero with Clean Heat Networks

5th July 2022, Europe 12:30 - 14:00 BST

How low carbon district heating technology can help municipal energy companies reduce the cost of transitioning to net zero emissions.

The decarbonisation of heat in homes and commercial properties across towns and cities in Europe is probably the biggest challenge we face in the transition to net zero. Why? Because most of our heat is produced by burning fossil fuels and 80% of the buildings standing today will still be around in 2050 – meaning they will require some form of retrofit to make them energy efficient and emissions-free in the process of heating them.

Municipal authorities have a critical role to play, and understand in equal measure the need to act with urgency to meet Net Zero deadlines, but also the need to act with prudence to ensure the best outcomes for its citizens and to protect the most vulnerable. In areas where district heating exists today, the municipal utility companies are looking at how to decarbonise their heat networks. For other municipal areas, green heat networks may be an option under consideration to decarbonise heat.

However, with the right refrigerant technology in your heat network, you can reduce upfront capital cost for the heat pump plant; enable simpler heat pump system design; provide a more reliable heat supply through less downtime; and be more energy efficient with lower operating costs and lower carbon emissions. So, what is this technology, and where do we start?

Join Honeywell and a select panel of likeminded industry executives as we discuss the challenges you’re facing with your energy transition and decarbonising heat, as well as how the right clean heat solutions can help you, your customers, and the environment.
